has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he has to be able to litigate and make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. folks believe the economy is bad right now but what they don't actually believe is it is the president's fault. he has to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him that the president is the one to blame for the economy we've got right now. >> there is something going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he is showing disrespect to the president but if he doesn't, then he looks defer yen shl. coach me, tell me how to walk on that stage -- deferential. coach me without being deferential? >> it's a matter of tone and how you address the president. as long as governor romney addresses the president with mr. president, your policies have failed the american people. i think as long as he carries a respectful tone. he needs to be what i would say as p
with the idea that romney actually has a plan. so he has to show a little more leg in terms of policy than he did at the convention. >> his race from the beginning is, i'm not barack obama, he is. >> how is that working? >> but here's the problem, you act as though his policies are actually popular. the vast majority of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying,
's -- krauthammer talks about -- romney does talk about foreign policy, a 20th century entitlement system, he talks about america and the need to be unapologetic. he talks about all these things. the problem romney has is he can't go a week talking about these things because he is tripping over his own words and gaffes whether the clint eastwood moment or running to criticize obama for the libya attacks and each and every time he tries to build momentum around these themes, build a larger place to get obama out -- he over shadows. >> you just said theme. that is what charles krauthammer says. he said if there were an over arching thing mitt romney was carrying from foreign policy -- >> you can only build that theme if you do it day in and day out and obama has done his theme which is romney is this rich guy who is going to outsource everything. he's been tripped up every now and then but by and large has been consistent. mitt romney has been his own worst enemy. >> that is the problem kelly. they don't have a big over arching theme as charles krauthammer says that carries them through a week where

to be increasing his lead over mitt romney. is that because at heart voters don't really vote on foreign policy, or is it because they don't think romney is any more credible than the president on foreign policy matters? >> well, actually, gregg, if you start looking closely at some of those interim polls -- internal polls, if you start looking specifically at the question about job approval on handling of national security and foreign policy issues, over the last couple of weeks president obama's numbers have really steadily dropped -- gregg: but only 4% say they vote on such matters. >> well, that may be the case, but it is an overall picture when voters go to the polls. we understand we're in a war whether we want to see it clearly or not, we are in a war, and we're not just voting for an economic steward or president, we're also voting for a commander in chief. there was a brand new national bloomberg poll released today, gregg, that actually shows governor romney leading president obama on the issue of terrorism by six points. gregg: julie, we know now that within 24 hours of this 9/11 att
a cartoon. mitt romney -- the u.s. should immediately bomb england. foreign policy with mitt romney. this is a cartoon that i had in my comic strip. we each have these -- i do not know. i am not sure if best and -- i promised i would not miss up your comic strip. we each do a comic strip so we are lucky as far as editorial cartoons. good to use the other side of our brands to read comics. i have been accused of making my way to political. this is my 9/11 tribute. it actually was originally a long strip. you have to turn your head to see it. i made it into an editorial cartoon. here is mitt romney having a candlelight vigil for osama bin laden. this is a cartoon i did the year after 9/11 about maybe some of the causes behind 9/11. this is also the year after 911. i call it the twin tepees. it marks the genocide that has happened. it was a reaction to some of the more excess of chest beating about 9/11. we never remember the other tragedies that have been on american soil. i do not really have anything to say about this. [laughter] i think the ladies and know what i am talking about.
policies will make life better for american families. >> reporter: romney has had trouble getting that message across. the obama campaign is far outspending him in advertising and swing states and the media conservatives say is bias against them and in our interview romney declined to take what would be an easy shot. >> do you think the mainstream media is in the tank for president obama? >> we have free press and they're able to provide their perspectives based on their beliefs. there are people more on my camp and a lot of people more on his camp and i don't worry about that. >> reporter: campaigning wednesday in ohio, president obama had no trouble being critical of his opponent and evening converting a verbal misstep to an attack on romney. >> i want to see us export more jobs -- export more products, excuse me. i was i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> reporter: now the president is out with another new ad today and it looks almost like he's trying to one-up romney. romney had a new ad yesterday where he's talking directly to voters, making his case and today
weeks ago was the reverse. the obama campaign saying the romney campaign is coming off. you don't want to be on the defensive. what the debates should be about, it's a contest of character but it's also a contest of policy. staying on policy is more productive. i don't know that the american people take any of this seriously. the constant attack on the other. i think obama was saying this is the nature of politics. i think both camps have done things that are inappropriate. but politics as usual. megyn: can he change the momentum of this campaign when he gets to wednesday's debate? the president seems to have taken the lead in a couple swing states this week. so governor romney is clearly looking at that. >> what the president is taking the lead in most effectively. putting governor romney totally on the defensey which is not where he needs to be with the economy being what it is. and that is why it's so critical while he's on the same stage as president obama. no real filter in between. for him to turn around and say, mr. president, how can you make an affirmative case that we are bet
